On Saturday, November 13, 2021, Mark Navin, PhD, HEC-C, will present on Governing Vaccination by Harming the Innocent? Protecting the Interests and Rights of Unvaccinated Children, at the MSMS Foundation’s 25th Annual Conference on Bioethics.

Doctor Navin is a Professor and Chair of Philosophy at Oakland University, Lecturer in the Department of Foundational Medical Studies at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, and Clinical Ethicist at Beaumont. Doctor Navin’s research is primarily in clinical ethics and ethics in public health and includes empirical work in both areas.

His current projects include a book about vaccine mandates with Katie Attwell (America’s Vaccine Wars: California and the Politics of Mandates, under contract with Oxford University Press). He also co-chairs Beaumont Hospital’s Ethical Allocation Committee for COVID-19 vaccines and serves on Oakland University’s Student Success Committee and the Vaccine Exemption Committee.
